Dear khalid,
To fix this problem you need to reset waste ink counter of the printer by using General Tools for Canon ip1200 series (General Tools for ip1300 & 1800 series also works on this printer)
Perform following step to reset waste ink counter:

  • Enter service mode:
-Plug in power cable while holding power button.
-Press RESUME button twice
  • Connect USB cable (you may also connect USB cable before entering service mode, no problem).
  • Run General Tool
  • Select USB port
  • Click waste ink counter: Main & Platen
  • Turn off the printer then turn on and run your printer as usual.
I think it will be more helpful with picture enclose. For I cannot insert image more than 150 kb here, I suggest you to visit Canon Inkjet Printer Forum. I have discussed this topic before.
Please rate me.
Regards,

Waste Ink near full shows on screen. Won't print!


Hi ...

Cannon Pixma MP780 have an absorber and this error is related to this absorber.

This printer has an ink absorber that takes in ink during the printing and print head cleaning processes. The cleaning process is necessary in order to keep the print head nozzles from becoming clogged. Over the life of the printer, the amount of ink that the ink absorber has absorbed is calculated by the printer. Eventually, after substantial use, the printer will enter an error condition when the ink absorber is nearly full. At this point, printing is still possible. Press the <Stop/Reset> button to cancel the error. You will still be able to print for a short period. To protect the printer from damage, you will not be able to print at all once the ink absorber is full.
Canon recommends having the printer serviced before the absorber becomes full. Replacing the ink absorber is a complicated and potentially messy procedure. Even if the ink absorber is successfully changed, the ink absorber counter must be reset.

I would suggest that you take your printer to the nearest cannon service centre and get it repaired.

Don't forget to vote if this helps ... Cheers :)

My Cannon IP 1600 waste ink absorber is full. can you help me?


If when the head is moved to the position for changing carts, I think on the right you may find trays under where the head is parked, normally. Sponge out with cotton buds some of the ink and run a resetter for this machine (Google resetter for Canon ip1600) hope you find it

Cannon pixma ip1000


..ip1000 questions..

..it's cleaning time, a simple if messy operation. You will have to clean the print head and the waste ink pads, and whilst there might as well clean all the other gunk as well..

..so how to do this ?

..power on, open front, let carrier slide to middle front, pull power cable, pull computer cable.

..Remove cartridges

..by hand slide carrier to left to below the grooves in the upper case front. Clip the grey print head retainer, it pivots to the printer back, it must go up in the grooves, then remove print head, it comes forward..
